Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and a huge number of users much more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems that handle the information in massive chunks, it processes everything in small bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill in a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information in the first field as soon as it is typed, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it indeed does make a difference if an immense number of users are navigating a website at once. Several instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that support fast live communication.

Node.js in Hosting

You can make use of Node.js with each hosting package that we offer, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared web hosting account with a few clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you would like to activate. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you wish. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide if the connection should go through the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to remove an instance and to view any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service come with Node.js, so if you’d like to host any real-time application on our leading-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to make full use of the power that the system can offer you with only a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so if you wish to use Node.js for different web sites, you will be able to pick the amount of active instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use graphical interface, you will have to include the path to the .js file for each instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will set a random port to access your application and you will find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also enable you to see the output of any of your applications or to stop/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All Linux VPS web hosting service that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js as standard and you can take advantage of the event-driven platform for each application that you run on the Virtual Private Server. As we have not set a restriction on how many instances you can run, you can take advantage of the power of our Virtual Private Servers and mix it with the full potential of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with, point & click interface, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you won’t have to cope with any difficulties while using the platform. You’ll only need to include the folder path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. Furthermore, our system will also assign a port to access this file and you’ll be able to find it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to check the output of your applications and to stop or to restart any instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated service on which our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a pretty simple and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you have not worked with Node.js before, you will be able to unveil its full potential in only a few easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will need to insert the directory path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP address that they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will set a random port that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any constraint as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can set up and use simultaneously and you’ll have full command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to get new ones or to terminate/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each application, etcetera.
